Last week, one of our Loungers Korbin Bielski requested we do a tutorial teaching the post production techniques to pulling off the dreamy vintage high-fashion look as seen in W Magazine. So, here it is guys, can’t say we don’t listen to our Loungers ;)

In this Photoshop video tutorial, I am going to be showing you step by step how to create this vintage high-fashion look. From some minor image touch ups, to coloring to adding in our final lens flare to complete our desired effect.

The reference image shown below is from “Dual in the Sun” a W Magazine photos shoot. The images were shot by Jean Baptiste Mondino and the models/actors Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender were styled by Lori Goldstein. To see the full article and photo shoot, visit the article on W Magazine.


Enjoy the tutorial, and let us know what you think!
